If you want to combine your pleasures, then the courtyard garden behind Rococo Chocolates is just the place for you. A previously neglected city space had been transformed with all the scents of the Rococo repertoire: rose, lavender, geranium, mint, jasmine, and kaffir lime. The result is a stunning asymmetric mirrored courtyard in the middle of Belgravia, where you can sip mint tea, hot chocolate or cappuccino. Cakes freshly made on the premises. Cultivation, chocolate and cake – what more can any girl wish for?
